a little more

& those are the memories you want to cherish the rest of your life. I pour my heart into what I do from getting ready for that first meeting with a couple to sending out that final package with all of their beautiful images just waiting to be shared... it’s my passion & such an honor to be a part of people’s lives in this way. That’s why I love connecting with clients. I want to get a feel for who you are so I can capture, not just your smile, but your heart.

Those are the images I want to capture because they’re real & honest... 

To me photography has never been about just taking pictures. It’s about connection. The twinkle in the eyes of two people head over heels for each other. Or the dad who’s about to give his daughter away as he walks her down the aisle, or the joy of family & friends celebrating by dancing the night away...

from my soul to yours

A heartfelt WELCOME

my favorite things

I truly love where God has placed me in this moment & really feel grateful to be doing so many things that I’ve dreamt of for so long. It’s not perfect by any means, but even in the less than perfect moments;  it’s all still worth it.

I’m a Photographer. A Wife. A Mom. A Follower of Jesus. A Coffee Addict. A City Enthusiast. A Dog Lover. An Extroverted Introvert. & some days it can all feel like a whirlwind (thus the coffee!), but I love it.

I chose my college based partially on location & it doesn’t get much better than downtown Chicago! But I love being in any city because of its vibrance, architecture, culture, food, diversity, history & just being able to walk where you want to go. We love living in downtown Kansas City!

O1. my mission

We could never express in words how grateful we are for Allie’s artistry in our wedding photos.




grateful

Bethany & Denny

Allie's pictures far exceeded my expectations. Her images are beautiful & extremely well done. She is so laid back & easy to work with you forget she's photographing you, so you're able to be yourself & comfortable in front of the camera.


far exceeded my expectations

Alissa & Luke

Allie was such a sweetheart to work with on our wedding day. She captured perfectly the magic of the evening even in the midst of mild chaos due to a storm on the day of our outdoor wedding. 

perfectly captured

Faith & Jared

I can't even describe the first two experiences we've had with Allie Coyle Photography... just full of breathtaking photos & an incredible experience shooting with Allie. 



breathtaking photos & incredible experience

Heather & Oliver

I wanted a photographer I could trust to capture the uniqueness of the day, my hubs & I received photos that speak to our relationship with each other & our friends & family. Allie was by far my favorite vendor & I treasure our wedding photos. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

highly recommend

Alyssa & Ben

We hired Allie for our engagement & wedding photos & could not be more impressed! She captured all of the important moments in great clarity with no frills or special effects. She is a truly gifted photographer & we recommend her, & her distinct style, very highly.

could not be more impressed

Jenni & Nate

Yes! I will talk you through the entire process, so there’s no need to feel like you have to show up knowing what to do. I will help you with posing that will feel natural to you. Because every client is different, it means that your session will be unique! While I will give direction, I also like to step back at times & let you interact as you normally would. This helps me get to know who you better & also allows me to take inspiration from you & lead you in to more natural poses. My biggest advice is just be yourself!! The less you focus on the camera, the more relaxed you’ll feel & that will translate into images that reflect the real you.

+ I’m not comfortable in front of the camera so I’m not quite sure what to do... can you help?

let's talk about it

common questions

It can be nerve wracking to think through different outfit options & what’s going to look best. I always tell people that, first & foremost, whatever you wear- be comfortable! (Of course that’s not to say show up in your favorite lounge outfit!) But if you’re feeling something is too tight, too short, bunches weird or you have to keep adjusting; that uncomfortable feeling will keep you from fully relaxing & being in the moment. Wear something in which you feel confident & most like yourself! 

Don’t worry about being perfectly matched, but just think about coordinating. It’s great to choose a three or four color palette with one color being your “pop” of color. Then incorporate those in the various outfits you choose. (i.e. white, grey, navy & gold)

+ what should i wear?

Yes! I’ve shot all over the Kansas City area so you if you have a type of location in mind, let me know & we can talk through options. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, that’s okay too! I love helping people find a backdrop that fits their style & will help enhance the images. 

+ will you help us pick out locations?

I’m glad you asked! This is a common question photographers get asked because it appears that once you have a camera, you’re good to just start shooting & making money. (If only that were true!) Photography is actually be a very expensive business. First of all, 30% of any session goes straight to taxes. (Ouch!) Then there’s paying for your website hosting, insurance on all of your gear, any new lenses, camera bodies or equipment, gear repair & maintenance, advertising, classes or workshops (because the goal is to always be improving!), editing software & updates, workflow & accounting software, packaging, paying second photographers, the list goes on! The longer someone has been in the business, the more their pricing will increase because they’ve invested that much more back into their business & their craft. So, at the end of the day the saying really is true that you get what you pay for!

+ so, really, why does photography cost so much?
